14 Sep “Cowpoke”
10 x 8″ oil/canvas panel
I decided to take a break today after fussing around with a large painting I’m working on. So I painted this little guy as a diversion. This again is from my imagination, but after completing it I came to realize this sort of looks like a younger version of my artist friend Bob Durden. Bob is curator at Paris Gibson Museum of Art in Great Falls, MT and we met up with each other last Saturday at the C.M. Russell – Master’s in Miniature art auction. He is much more cheerful than this rendering, but equally as charming. Thanks for the inspiration Bob!
